One of the most common questions about the new ISGS website seems to be: Who are those people in the photos?
Honestly, we don't know - they were provided by Easy Net Sites during the design process of the ISGS website. But as more questions came in, we thought: wouldn't it be great to see our own ancestors' photos up there?
In response, ISGS is holding an Ancestor Photo Contest. Between now and March 31, 2011, ISGS is asking members to submit photos of their own ancestors for use on the ISGS website. If your photo is selected, it will be displayed on a rotating-basis in the top banner of the ISGS website along with other member-submitted photos.
Not only will you be credited with the photo submission, but you'll also be able to provide a brief biography of the person or persons in the photo. So click here to print out the photo release and application form and submit your ancestor photos today!
